Inexpensive mods List:

Hey guys, just though it would be cool to start a list of little mods that are not too expensive.

-Bowtie overlay(s)
-Weight reduction
-Paint:
-Headlights
-Bowties
-Drum Brakes/Calipers
-Trim
-door panels
-headliner
-A pillars
-door inserts
-Rims (LINK)
-Air Box Mod(s)
-Antenna Chop
-PVC Intake Pipe
-Pedal covers
-NiteShades
-24Designs emblem
-CSS.net decals
-remove engine cover
-white gauges ($25 shipped,ebay)
-Change out bulbs
-interior map lights
-side markers
-trunk light
-license plate light
-reverse lights
-Custom mesh grills
-E-brake mod

There's a few things that are usually under $20 (but can be expensive if you go nuts)
- Custom mesh grills
- E-brake mod
- anything to do with LED's, bulbs, etc

theres an airbox mod where you cut the stock airbox on the 2.2/2.4, and then theres the silencer mod where you cut the silencer which is pre-airbox
